    It's just like Jello. There's always room for outrage!

    Time to lock all hotheads up in the cellar and take their one bullet out of their breast pocket before they Barney Fife it into their foot.

    Huh? You mean two congressmen, neither of whom know anything more than has been released to the public and what they've see on the news?

    Btw, neither of them serve on any sort of intel committees.

    Re: FBI Hunts Terror 'Sleeper Cell' Linked to Tsarnaev Brothers

    The death of one suspected bomber and the capture of the other on Friday in the Boston Marathon bombing may not be the end of arrests in the case. Yesterday afternoon, FBI and DHS agents arrived at the same New Bedford apartment complex where they had detained three people in the Friday manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, this time taking two away in handcuffs:

    Agents wearing FBI and Department of Homeland Security jackets detained two men at the Hidden Brook apartment complex just hours after releasing three people believed to be associated with Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

    Interestingly, this time the FBI and DHS didn’t come alone. A consular vehicle from an unidentified nation also arrived, and transported two women out of the complex after the arrests took place:

    Earlier Saturday afternoon, a silver mini-van with consulate license plates arrived at the Carriage Drive apartment along with the FBI and Homeland Security, and stayed a half an hour longer than the agents.

    The van left with two women, neither of whom appeared to be restrained. One was carrying a pink backpack as she exited the apartment and ran into the van, which sped away as the women told reporters they did not wish to comment.

    The police told the Standard-Times on Friday that the two men were believed to be fellow students at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

    Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror in the UK reports that the FBI is investigating the possibility that the Tsarnaev brothers were part of a “sleeper cell” in the US that could contain a dozen operatives:

    The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.

    Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.

    More than 1,000 FBI operatives were last night working to track down the cell and arrested a man and two women 60 miles from Boston in the hours before Dzhokhar’s dramatic capture after a bloody shootout on Friday.

    A source close to the investigation said: “We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.

    “They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come.”

    Update: The New York Daily News has photos of the two men, and report that they have been detained on “immigration violations”:


    Two foreign nationals — who are believed to be associates of the alleged Boston Marathon bombers — were arrested Saturday on immigration violations, authorities said.

    The men, identified by neighbors as 19-year-olds from Kazakhstan, drove around in a black BMW with the mock license plate, “TERRORISTA #1.”

    The pair was hauled out of their New Bedford apartment in handcuffs about 3:50 p.m. The raid was carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, a spokesman told the Daily News.

    Update: Looks like KDKA has heard what the Mirror reported earlier:

    I'm hoping these were the idiots who twittered that the FBI was there before the FBI had a chance to search the complex initially.

    I am interested in who the Silver Mini Van was representing. Someone should have followed that back to wherever it went.

    Why would somebody shoot themselves in the throat? I have never heard of suicides doing that.

    Well, he might not have pointed the Gun up when he stuck it in his mouth. Plus I thought they said he was taking fire at the same time.
